Description:
Te Mata Estate is New Zealand's leading producer of cabernet/merlot blends; a reputation founded since 1982, upon the excellence of our flagship wine, Coleraine. The same quality grapegrowing and winemaking applies to Woodthorpe Merlot/Cabernets, our largest selling wine. Its popularity stems from its accessible, ripe fruit flavours, combined with an elegant palate structure, a hallmark of all Te Mata Estate's wines.

The individual parcels of each variety, from each plot, were destemmed and given a warm, plunged fermentation with extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were run off to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 19 months maturation. The barrels were regularly topped and racked before blending and egg white fining prior to bottling.

It has a dark ruby colour with aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry, cedar and spiced fruitcake.

The palate is rounded and generous, with lovely fruit richness supported by ripe powdery tannins, giving structure and length to the long finish.

This is a wonderful accompaniment to savoury red meats dishes and hard white cheeses, and will continue to evolve in bottle for 3-6 years from harvest.

46% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Petit Verdot.
